New paper: Vista Wireless Power Tools for the Penetration Tester

A few months ago I broke down and bought a new machine with Vista.  As
it turns out, the new wireless stack and exposed wireless API's
available with Vista's NDIS 6 model are pretty cool, and provide a lot
of functionality that just wasn't available in Windows XP.

I spent some time putting together a few new tools and describing
techniques where a Vista machine with a NDIS 6 wireless adapter could be
used to explore and exploit wireless networks.  The basic concept is
that, once you compromise a Vista client, any available wireless
interfaces can be used to attack nearby wireless networks, and to
leverage Vista functionality to establish unrestricted access into the
internal network.
